What is Pre-Law Day at Calvin?

Calvin's Pre-Law Day is designed to help college students explore a future in law. At this free event, you hear advice from legal experts and learn how to make yourself stand out to law schools. Panels of attorneys talk about what their work days are like and choosing a law career. Admissions representatives offer tips on crafting your law school application. They'll also talk about what law schools are looking for. In the breaks, you can visit the law school recruiting fair. The event includes lunches and breaks, which are offered at no-charge to college students.

The next Pre-Law Day is scheduled for Tuesday, October 19, 2021 at the Prince Conference Center on Calvin's campus. The day will include four sessions, lunch and breaks, and a mini-law school forum where you have the opportunity to ask admissions representatives from various law schools questions about their institution.

Register for Pre-Law Day here -- the day is free, but you must register in advance. Registration deadline is October 12. Late registrations will be accepted if space allows: contact Ellen Hekman at
